Synopsis Stankey Philipps has just got official news his wife, a soldier at the Iraq war, has been killed in combat. His world comes tumbling down and Stanley can even resort to crying: he has two little girls. Friends, acquaintances... they all have an opinion on how to break the news. At the end, he decides to take them on a trip to one of those children's paradises called Amusement Parks. Maybe, as they are entertained, thrilled about what is in store, they will not suffer as much when they learn their mother is dead. But the right time eludes him, and Stanley represes his pain, pretends, avoids questions, weaves stories for them, anticipates comfort... And who will comfort him?
